Brandon J. Mueller, 36, has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide and mutilating a corpse in conjunction with the strangulation death of his girlfriend, Renee, and the burning of her body and disposal of her remains in Lake Winnebago. A jury trial is scheduled for October 11, 2010.
In connection with Renee Redmer’s death, a jury convicted Brandon Mueller’s mother, Nancy J. Pinno, of mutilating a corpse and resisting or obstructing an officer. She was sentenced to seven years and six months in prison and five years of extended supervision.
Donald R. Worth, 37, Nancy Pinno’s friend, was found guilty of mutilating a corpse after a no-contest plea. He was sentenced to six years in prison and four years of extended supervision, with eligibility for earned release after three years of confinement.
Renee Redmer’s family reported her missing in January 2009, and arrests were made in July after a tip to police.
